Hai to all programmers in here. I just wanna know what is the secret to become a successful programmer. I need some tips especially to those persons who work online with codes to implement.
I think the basis for anyone to become a good professional (regardless of the chosen career) is to have willpower, to study, to be determined and above all, to be humble to know how to listen and recognize your own mistakes (because without that you can't be anything... at least not honestly).

Hi Wiseagent. You are not exacerbating an already difficult topic to discuss, yet, making the topic of discussion more helpful when you answer the question of what separates an amateur from a professional in whatever field the two parties are pursuing. This is true because to be the best we have to learn from the current best. Further, you did not make worse the topic of learning from even our own mistakes, due to the fact that many people may not seek to avoid repeating the same mistake 3 times in a row. I say 3 times because, the first time was a mistake; the second time you do it we now have a pattern--a direction that things are going in. THERE is where we can stop our amateurish decision-making; there does not need to be a 3rd time. Very nice insight.
It is nicely vigilant of you to have made aware those of us who may have gone without noticing that willpower is not only a thing of the programming past, yet is a need for the present day of programming as well. This is not to go without care due to the notion that future programming will more than likely have a ton of expedience that has been fained from today's experts in the programming fields all across the globe. I must say that I agree all the same on willpower for today's programming; very nice.
I'm sorry, but I didn't quite understand what you meant by your two comments about my comment. Are you agreeing with me or disagreeing? This wasn't 100% clear to me.
Will power is totally necessary, of course, but I don't think I would feel confident in programming unless I actually took formal classes in it. Of course, this could just be my own insecurity. I am no stranger to study, but I would like to have a formal classroom structure of some sort to do that in. I am a bit old-fashioned when it comes to that, I think.
This would certainly help a lot (this kind of knowledge is essential), especially in the matter of self-confidence in doing a more focused work with a more correct guidance on what needs to be really done.
Exactly that is the characteristic of a successful programmer. A programmer must be dedicated on his career and keep in mind always that being programmer is a huge responsibility that should be invested with a time and effort. A programmer must have a patience on his work and on the learning process of his or her ability and capability. If possible, do not hang out with friends or even do not do unimportant acts. Career first before anything else and you will find your way to a better future.
I studied information technology, but I'm not that successful in terms of programming, since my work for now is not related in that, but I think the best tips I can give you to be a successful programmer is to keep up your determination and patience. Continue learning and understand all kinds of languages and codes. Researching, studying, analyzing the work of other programmer and learn from their good ideas and even their mistakes. I know it's not that easy, because there no such easy ways in life, but with full determination, dedication and interest in that field, you can achieve your goal someday.
I studied information technology too! Like you, I am working on a non-IT company. I didn't pursue programming, what I want is networking but Cisco certification is expensive. Can't afford it.
To become successful in any fields of work, you must first hone your skills. It is important also if you continue to learn. And you must know how to listen to others. For you to improve more. With this, you can become a professional someday. And don't forget to have a confidence in yourself.
Being aware of your own abilities is within the package, but I think it's such an obvious thing that it does not even need to be much remembered (at least for those who have tried to do something on their own).
This is spot on. I think the best thing that you can do is just to practise. There are a lot of websites out there that will help you to learn different coding techniques. Once you learn these, just keep practising with them and you will end up learning quite a lot. Even just looking at other code that someone else has written can help you to learn and become a successful programmer.
You need to enroll yourself to a good school, it's either you took information technology or computer science. If you really want to be successful programmer, my number one advise is to never stop learning. Don't be satisfied to learn one programming language. Learn at least to up to three programming languages. Most of the companies are looking for experience and different set of programming skills, so you need to practice a lot of coding. Hope that helps!
I'm not an IT graduate but I had a subject Programming. It was really fun. But I think we had just saw the icing of it compared to what you have had studied.
Hi, pandooh. What course did you took and what programming language they taught you? Actually, I am an IT graduate, but I did not pursue it as a career. Programming is fun and challenging in my opinion. But to become a successful programmer, a person should have a lot of determination to master one programming language.
It was named Programming in general. We were taught about the Visual Basic? I don't know if that's a language but I think that's the only software we used throughout the semester. Anyways, we struggled for that course but for me it was easy, not that I'm bragging, but maybe it was just the basics in Programming?
In my second year in college, we also learn about Visual Basic. I may also say that it's kind of easy when you focus on its logic. I still remember the first system we made was Login System. That simple system lets you register and log in any account. It's quite simple to program and the version of it was VB 6.0 at that time. I just searched it and I saw that they already have a 2017 version. I'm missing the old days.
I will advise you to download tutorial on programming to learn and understand how it is done.Most skills sometimes need first-hand physical studies, you could enroll in a hereby tutorial center or school to horn your skills.The world of the internet is quite competitive, so you need to be outstanding to meet up and have good ratings to be able to have enough clients.
You need to go online and start making enough research on how to become a great programmer. There is nothing impossible on the planet as long as you're determined to achieve it. Tyr and watch lots of Youtube videos on how to become a good programmer and see how things will start working in your favour.
I think success has different measure for each one of us programmers. And on that point you can see that some people want to measure with the money. And some are measuring it with the learning. So depending on how you choose to measure it. Things would be lot different for each one of us. And success for such programmers won't be that easy. I guess we just have to consider for each one of our context. In that way it'd be reasonable to say people have their own set of the perception as well. Hopefully none of us have to agree on the point of success. Building good code and good product at the end can be one good measure for the programmers.
All you must do is to take a course of tech technology, we call it TIC here in my country, of course, you must pay for this course, but if you do not have the money you may check for free or cheaper tutorials on how to become a good programmer.
An easy way it would be if a friend would help you out is easier to learn and you may understand faster how things work!
It probably takes time for this to happen. Me as a I.T. student, wherein I do learn and did study just for the first year on my college and did dropout of the second year is really hard but what did I do is I didn't stop from learning it like there are bunch of things you can check for you to learn something even if it's basic or not, it's still important. I remember studying programming again in this site called Udemy where I learn a lot of things in where I didn't learn on my first college years and I'm proud of it, at least I do learn something useful for my course.
Programming is very complex and it takes a lot of time to master. All you need is passion, determination, will power to succeed any given task. Sometimes you need creativity and be calm, since it's very stressful when you face bugs.
Hard work, determination, and willingness to spend more time to learn programming. Do some research on the high demand programming on online jobs. Commit yourself in learning the programming skills necessary. Focus on one particular programming first, learn as much as you can, and have a deeper understanding of that language. Programming is really daunting and boring to learn. If your heart is not on learning to programming, it is really difficult to study.
To be successful, you need to be very good at what you do. You can acquire skills by taking courses on and offline to boost yourself and remember practice makes perfect. Good luck.
I kinda agree with you and I think that's all part of the package, but don't you think it takes a little more to make things work the way you expect? For example: professional contacts with influential people in your business field and maybe a little bit of luck?
What do you think about that?
if you want to become a successful programmer as much as possible learn all the major programming languages that is currently highly use by our society right now finish school and keep practicing to make it more effective. i myself is a fourth year programmer but i still learning new programming languages to added to me and use it in the future. just be positive don't give up and you will become a great programmer.
You have to study on your own and when you feel like you are ready you have to work on some projects on your own. School doesn't always help, so it's better to do it on your own. When you have some projects in your portfolio you can apply for a job or an internship and you will learn more there.
School is just the tip of the iceberg because the knowledge acquired is generally considered low, especially when the subject is relatively of a high complexity.
It's always good to try to run across the other tracks and learn something in your own way.
In my case, I've got only about 10% of my skills in programming from the school, the rest, I acquired it by self studying. There are lots of knowledge that you can get from the internet rather than by just sitting inside the classroom and taking lectures. Find people in the internet that really do the programming stuff.
To become successful to any profession, you should put hard work and dedication. One must be willing to take chances that can improve his skill and his knowledge. He should be ready for the changes that technology may bring. He should be open to learning from others who have experiences on the said profession. It is also important that you are
enjoying your work, do not stress too much.
All it needs is focus, time and effort. Being a successful programmer really needs a time to learn everything from that field. A programmer must have the attitude of patience, creative and dedicated. It is a very hard course but worth at the end because it is the demand mostly in every employment. People who knows programming is rare nowadays and not a joke thing. As you will look to some of them they look good and no problem at all but in reality they struggled and sacrificed everything first just to achieve that goal in life. Do not give up because all it takes is focus time and effort to become successful. Watch how Bill Gates succeed to inspire you do and pursue more.
You have to study hard to become a successful programmer. You should build up your skills as per the requirement. I would suggest you start researching the internet and study. You can read different programming books, watch youtube videos of the subject. Youtube will provide you lots of information to guide you to become a programmer. Study from different programming blogs and forums to gain information.
Exactly. I think everyone can be anyone and everything, but you need the proper education and training. To be a successful programmer, you will need to know all the skills. For sure you can help yourself by watching YouTube tutorials, but you will need experience too. So, if you want to be a programmer, you have to start by getting used to that community online, they will tell you the better sites to improve yourself in that area.
Before I launched my website, I never thought I would take interest in learning programing. When I launched my website, I know the importance of learning programing for webmasters. If you don't know programing, you knowledge and skill of managing your website will be limited and it is also not possible to hire an expert every time you come across a problem. I have l warned some programing lessons by myself. Now I am thinking to join a web programing class. The first requirement to become a successful programmer is develop better skills.
While I by no means am a successful programmer (in fact, I'm not a programmer at all and I just tried making a video game one time as a hobby) I think that to become one requires the same to same sort of persistent diligence, determination, and patience that is expected of anyone in any line of work. You can't expect overnight success. It's going to take patience, dedication, and a will to improve and learn more and more every single day. If you focus on honing your skills, put yourself out there and search for work opportunities, your hard work will one day pay off. Remember that there is no such thing as luck. Your "luck" is determined by how hard you're willing to work.
Well for me to be a successful programmer you just need to research, learn, and practice. Trying to be a programmer is very hard and there are things you need to understand and know such as different languages, codes and other logical things that needed in being a programmer. So the most things you can do is to research things that may help you and apply it or practice the things you have learned.
To be a successful programmer, you have to go against all traditional ways of education, it's a practical domain, means that you have to apply the theories you have just learned immediately and let go of the old ones like they've got the plague.
What you said really makes a lot of sense because most of the time you need to take risks to get to success. It's not something easy, your ideas can be poorly seen and you may receive a lot of negative reviews but you have to always continue to believe in yourself.
I strongly agree with you. But there are things that should be according to the programmer's perspective of how the deal such things. The only thing programming I hate most was the confusion of codes related to the application, because sometimes we need INTERNET connection to do stuff of programming. I used to be a programmer of JAVA, now I don't usually use it these things at all, because I have no job offers about it at all.
Today I research a lot of programming related to clients perspectives. It's incredible that there a lot of
people tend to learn it in easy way, and also easy to catch up new trends of programming technologies we have now. I do believed it mus t have technical knowledge to computer before doing programming to harness this kind of skills.
Practical experience is always beneficial. So you're right on that. People who try to get more experience become more successful. And that seems to be the way things can be improved. I am not sure how things can be changed in that context. I have seen some people doing the programming gigs and managed to pull off some really good credentials with their efforts. That's what I have learned from my experience.
Wow, I also what to learn at least the basic in programming. Well maybe in the near future I will go on this.
If you really want to know this world better and be a part of it, you don't have to wait so long... Just look for YouTube tutorials or specialized forums that you'll find this very easily (and usually in a very didactic way).
What a successful programmer must have is the technical skills. A person must have experiences in computer related duties.
A lot of problems might come in programming so problem solving skills is also included.
I studied Information Technology and I remember how challenging programming used to be for me. There are some of my friends who were really good in programming but unfortunately that was not the case for me. I had to study very hard for the different programming classes that I had. I did so many research about programming and studied really hard. I managed to pass my exams and this was all due to my hard work. All that I want to say is that Hard work is the key to success. Believe in yourself.
I don't usually find it to make easier to be a programmer, as long as you love doing program, it will be easier, for you to programming stuff. The more you love something, the more you do it according to your passion. You should consider these things, because I always ignore it, and find it nothing. But when I realized it was true that, when you have
passion over things. You should consider your stuff to love, so that you will not force doing things unnecessarily.
Now I am self educated semi programmer, because I don't usually love to program. I love doing stuff differently than others. I always recommend client base programming, or so called python application. It would help you to recreate your own style of feature designs.
To be a successful programmer. Do advance studies about the topics that may be tackled on your class. Don't be lazy keep on practicing programming languages that you desired to master. Seek reference on internet don't be dependent on your instructors because they can't teach all the necessary topics that you can use when you start working in the field of information technology.
To be a successful programmer you need discipline , when I mean discipline I mean pinpoint discipline, this a factor many people tend to neglect when listing the factors needed to be a successful programmer. Without discipline you will not go far.
Any to be successful, you need to be humble, be humble to stupor when learning, because you will never know it all. And remember to pay in other to learn, this free courses will likely take you no where, so make sure you learn from a successful. programmer and watch yourself become successful.
Depends, What success means to you?. I'm not a programmer but I think that to be the best in what you do, you need to be a disciplined person, you need to love what you do, you need to honest always, you need to be updated all the time and teaching other people what you know, is also a good advice. Good Luck!.
To be a successful programmer like everything in life, you need first and foremost to learn your craft. You don't necessarily need to get a degree. They are many online courses that you can take from the comfort of your home.
You also need to practice programming every opportunity that you get. I personally tend to learn things better when I practice them than when someone is teaching.
Its also a good idea to find someone that is already a successful programmer and get some tips from them. As the saying goes he that wears the shoe feels the pinch. We can only give you so much advise especially those of us that are not programmers.
Well I am not suppose to participating in this thread because I am not a programmer nor a successful one but maybe in order for you to become a successful program you must first start it with your goal. I mean if you have your own goal,it is easy for you to decide and achieve those things that you wanted someday.
To become a successful programmer, you must follow the footsteps of others who have succeeded in being programmers. In life, one of the ways to succeed in the things we do is by imitating the way others are doing it. Software developers are all over the internet with their pool of experience in programming. You can check out programmers' websites and grab some ideas on how you can set up your own business.
Programming is something you should be passionate about. I suggest taking a course in programming because you need the skills and tips to be able to create the codes and make them run successfully. Personally, I found programming to be hard in school and so I lost interest in it.
I agree with your opinion. To be a successful programmer it is imperative for one to follow a course. In fact, I have a degree in Information Technology and I can confirm that this is not an easy course. There is so much to learn. Furthermore, practice is really important. While I was at the University I was trained how to write codes, set up databases and so on.
That's very true, if you are not passionate about programing, you will never become a better programmer. I will share this from my own experience., many years ago, when I had no intention to become a web programming and never took interest in programming, I joined a programming course (because I got the free offer), however, I learned nothing. Now, as a web master I take interest in programing and I am learning at a great speed.
For me, if programming is really your passion then you will be able to become a good programmer because I believe any thing that you love to do leads to success. When there's something that we really want to do or to learn, we did not let it go until we master or we learn it. I think there's so such secret to become a successful programmer as long as it is your passion. People have their own ways to succeed in any field they are trying to dig in. But I suggest, just don't waste time, learn from research, forums, seminars, etc., talk to professionals, and don't forget to practice what you read, heard and learn from other people.
